Serow, Penelope; Sullivan, Terence; Taylor, Neil – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2017
Teacher-made teaching and learning resources are an effective way to facilitate relevant and appropriate curriculum content, values and attitudes for students. This is particularly significant when the context is rather unique, as was the case in the remote developing Pacific Island Country of Nauru. Such resources can be deployed in accompaniment…

Mee, Lee Shok – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2017
Malaysian mangrove resources are exploited for woods, fisheries, wildlife, agriculture, and in recent decades for aquaculture and ecotourism. Such exploitations are often unsustainable, particularly when there is permanent change in land usage. In the last four decades, it is estimated that the overall loss in mangrove areas is over 16 percent…

Yeoh, Miranda P. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2017
Science is for all students in all countries; and this is a principle of equity. An explicit aim of science education is to create a high level of scientific literacy so that students have a greater understanding of science content knowledge that is associated with life, the physical world and earth sciences. As 21st century citizens, it is…

Azam, Saiqa – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper describes an action research study aimed at challenging and changing the epistemological views of pre-service science teachers (PSTs) during a core course on educational psychology in a teacher education programme. The researcher, as an instructor, used this course to provide learning opportunities for PSTs to change their existing…

Gelamdin, Rashidah Begum; Daniel, Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper investigates the level of knowledge and interest in biotechnology education of Malaysian secondary school students. The research was based on a questionnaire adapted from the instruments developed by Prokop et al. and Kidman. Six schools in the Klang Valley were involved in the research and with participation by a total of 427 Grade 11…

Wichaidit, Patcharee Rompayom; Wichaidit, Sittichai – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
Learning chemistry may be difficult for students for several reasons, such as the abstract nature of many chemistry concepts and the fact that students may view chemistry as irrelevant to their everyday lives. Teaching chemistry in familiar contexts and the use of multiple representations are seen as effective approaches for enhancing students'…

Causapin, Mark – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper expands the scope of typical quantitative studies on mathematics self-efficacy by including a short ethnography of the students' daily classroom experiences. It attempts to provide a "thicker description" and a context in which these beliefs could be interpreted. Using both qualitative and quantitative sets of data, it is…

Simin, Cai; Lam, Toh Tin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper presents the design and development of a rubric for assessing mathematical modelling for mathematical modelling tasks at the secondary level. A rubric was crafted based on the mathematical modelling competencies synthesised by the researchers identified from four sources. The rubric was fine-tuned following an interview with three…

Cyril, Nelson; Coll, Richard – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper reports an experimental study on Form Four (16 year olds) students' conceptions about two acid-base models (Arrhenius & Brønsted-Lowry). An intact class was divided into two groups that were taught different acid-base models. One teacher taught one of the groups the Brønsted-Lowry model while another teacher taught the Arrhenius…

Eric, Chan Chun Ming; Vapumarican, Rashidah; Vanessa, Oh Kaiwen; Tracy, Liu Huanjia; Shirley, Seah Yew Hwee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
The solving of structured multi-step word problems has been a dominant practice in schools and is seen as a way to develop students' mathematical reasoning abilities. Unfortunately, it is limited in scope and does not provide opportunities for eliciting deeper reasoning as they are neither rich enough nor anchored in authentic data that resemble…

Donald, Claire; Anderson, Dayle; Barker, Miles – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
When primary school science teaching is critiqued, much attention is paid to teachers' perceived deficiencies in their specific knowledge and beliefs about science, and about science pedagogical content knowledge. Scant credit is given to teachers' rich contributions derived from their knowledge and beliefs in three more generic domains--namely,…

Kushairi, Norliza – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
This is an action research carried out to challenge my PowerPoint-based traditional way of delivering lecture. Awakened by calls for 21st century classroom models, which, among others, is to embed creativity and innovation as a means for critical thinking skill, a journey to embark on a cloud-based zooming presentation combined with grounded-based…

Hiong, Sim Joong; Daniel, Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
Perceiving (such as seeing) and representing (such as drawing and talking about what one perceives) is fundamental to chemical education. The purpose of this study was to gain further insights and understanding into selected students' representational competence in chemistry through student-generated representations (SGR). In the mixed model…

Samsudin, Mohd Ali; Haniza, Noor Hasyimah; Ismail, Juliah; Abd-Talib, Corrienna – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
This study was undertaken to explore the effects of informal science learning outside the classroom on preschool students' achievement in the Early Science learning topic (plant-related topics that presented concepts about tree leaves, height and roots) using an inquiry method. A sample of 64 preschool students was selected using purposive…
